If we come, you won't have to worry about the ham. We're two of the biggest hams you will ever meet!

Mashed potatoes with noodles? Huh? Could you elaborate please?

Barbara, hams you might be, but I'd never try to stuff you in the oven! LOL!!
Theres always room for one more. Or two, or six. Come on up.

Depending on my time crunch I may cheat and buy the pastry shells from the store. Feeling lazy this week.

Menu

Turkey (Duh! just need an aprox weight. I like some leftover so what 18-20lbs?
Stuffing
Gravy
Roast potatoes
Green bean casserole
Broccoli/wild rice thing
Squash (spaghetti or butternut)
Buns
Apple pie
Rhubarb pie
Pumpkin pie (if MIL brings it)
Cheesecake (cherry)

Am I missing anything? Should I do some appys? I generally don't because then folks are hungrier for the real meal. How about nibblies for later that night?

How about baking a Ham also?, it will give your guests 1 more meat choice and ups your chances of leftovers.

I love the canned as well. Something about tradition.

Happy Thanksgiving! Everything sounds real good - after dinner my family always roasts chestnuts - I'm not a fan but do it for the tradition -- hope your feast is wonderful!
